Do You Delegate Tasks to Other Professionals? Make Sure You Are Legally Compliant
Posted on: 12/18/2017

If you're like most physicians, you don’t have time to do everything yourself in your practice. But are you on firm legal footing as you delegate tasks to other professionals?

ISMS offers a newly updated medical legal guideline, Physician Delegation, covering to whom physicians may delegate tasks or duties (including physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses).

The resource also outlines the methods by which to delegate, the rules for delegating in an office or practice setting, and what you need to know about written collaborative agreements.

Access the resource today!

Please note that ISMS cannot provide legal advice, and private legal matters should be referred to your practice attorney. If you have questions, please contact the ISMS Legal Department at 800-782-4767 or send an email.
